I have both the early repress mastered by Kevin Gray and this one and the KG repress is richer and with more texture. The bells ring out more and Sufjan draws me in more. This pressing isn't bad, though it's way more poppy than my first pressing and I cleaned both with an ultrasonic cleaner.

Anyone else having problems with the side 2 label overlapping the runout groove? I bought two at my local record shop and on both the runout groove dipped into the label.

On my copy, a sticker with excerpts from reviews hides "Supes".

Does anyone have problems with side 1? Mine sounds absolutely atrocious.

According to a label rep, no copies were ever sold without the sticker over Superman. Any copies on the secondary market without the balloon were removed by the owner.
